Netflix: Why didn't I do this years ago?

Considering that I’m usually a bleeding-edge techie, I haven’t been a Netflix subscriber–until yesterday. After morning coffee and discussion with our friend the [non-profit development pro from St. Louis]( as she’s called by Greg, I bit the bullet and signed up for a $14.99 a month plan. It gives me two DVDs at a time and unlimited per month.

I won’t bore you with the details on Netflix since their [‘about us’]( page does a pretty good job of giving you the high points. Here’s the way I see it: Netflix will keep me in movies for less than premium channels on cable would cost and *I* get to pick the movies.  The best part is that I can queue up movies and let the system work for me.  It’s like a time-lagged TiVo.
Right now, the newest movie in the “Pirates of the Carribean” series is in the mail, due here tomorrow or Wednesday.  I’ll post a mini-review after we’re done.

  1. There’s lots of TV titles and obscure selections, which makes Netflix even more enjoyable for me – a non-cable/satellite person.
